Introduction

Header for blogpost with Dr Strangelove Reference

We all have that one thing. That thing that makes our hearts swell, makes us feel giddy. That love for something other than a person … That love of mine is interiors. Creating a space that contains meaning and value–that captures memories and moods–out of little more than a few walls. This has always been a fascination of mine. Fine lines … between simple and stale, grand and grotesque.

I grew up sharing my mother’s love for magazines (Garden & Homes and House & Leisures), mountains of them piling up under beds or on coffee tables cause mom can’t throw them out. I dreamt of one day becoming an Architect or Interior designer or working at Elle Decoration … In the end I became a graphic designer. This is my daily profession.

So it would seem that a blog about interiors would be the natural outlet for this passion of mine. But it’s taken me some time to even consider this as a creative outlet. Even more time to summon the courage to get started. So be gentle with me while I take you along on this creative journey. I think we’ll learn much along the way.

My next post will be featuring a theme that I feel is quite suitable given my current lodgings. Berlin–the city I now call home–is arguably the poster child of bohemian, well, everything. So for my first interior subject I’ll be taking a stab at defining a look that is comfortably offbeat and idiosyncratic without being arty-farty or zany. You see … there’s that fine line again. Well then, until next time!
